Do you want to be part of the local Wikipedia community? Well then, head on over to Truth Coffee in Cape Town on 1 February and you will be able to meet all the good people involved on the South African side at the annual Wikipedia Meetup.
The official meet-up will have a number of things on the agenda, and one of them will focus on Wikimedia’s efforts to increase female participation. But the subject matter doesn’t have to stick to what is planned, as the agenda is really just a gateway for a discussion on what ever participants have in mind.
“The best place to learn about Wikipedia meetups is either by signing up the Wikipedia South Africa mailing list or, if you are an existing Wikipedia editor, to check your “Watchlist” where you will see a banner add of the next scheduled event in the country. Alternatively you could see all the Wiki Meetups scheduled around the world including in South Africa at the Wiki Meetup page on Wikipedia,” adds Scott.
